. this guy got elected and he got elected to change trade policy, to change the insane tax policy, to change the policy dealing with antitrust. for the past five years, what you people have been able to do whichus on this obamacare has very little to do with the ,verall economy versus the wars the insane trade policies or insane tax policies. all of this is a smokescreen. it is almost like weapons of mass destruction. if you're going to say here and the 15,000 when you have 20,000 on unemployment. 100 million people are living in poverty -- this is all this is. this is just politics to of peoples issue being critical of the president? we are at the point of this country where the whole thing is completely collapsed. after they at obama, had three years of borscht, the system needed the opposite. you people in the media created barack obama. and said of him coming in addressing the policies -- instead of him coming in addressing the policies, now you can talk about obamacare. i grew up in detroit. -- i wrotegreat book it. belt."g back the rust host: i think we got your point. scott, texas, re
better. those in the poll say they will vote independent in the 2014 elections compared to thele 28% who say they will vote republican. nicole. >> nicole, let's digest things here. president's ratings at an all time low. the republican party's approval ratings at an all time low in the nbc news "wall street journal" poll. i don't see things getting better for either side coming out of the government shutdown and any republicans thinking they are getting a boost by the president's problems can look at these polls and others and see it's just not enough to be against their guy, republicans have to come up with their own ideas. >> that's right. if you look at these numbers -- we keep talking about arriving at some sort of floor for republicans, and what's so stunning is that the bottom keeps getting lower and lower and i think -- i heard mike barn cal say something during way too early the world series has been a wonderful respite from all the ugliness in washington. i think that's true. what republicans have to take from this and joe you talked about this a lot, bush has talked about this,

a lot to do with a youtube video of the why was that? because there was election month later. bill: will show the youtube video was fabricated? what about the demonstration reported at one point? >> they will say from the very beginning it was a coordinated, well-executed, well-planned attack of terrorists on the american consulate in benghazi. bill: graham will not give this up. kelly ayote will not give up either. do you think they eventually get to them? >> i think what happens, the people, career civil servants, tell bense officers, soldiers who were there at the time, the special-ops guys, they will eventually come forward and say the truth. why? because they have saw their friend and colleagues die and they are still angry because nobody came to rescue them and they're still angry because, even at this date a year later nobody has gone after the terrorists. bill: 14 months later in fact. there is another report out of washington that two special operations forces had arrived in benghazi in time, and actually engaged in this terrorist hit. what do you think about that? >> i th
let it sink of its own weight. >> that's going to happen. >> and wait, there is a mid-term election in 2014 and this should bring out people in droves. let the people decide. that's fine. let the people decide ask that's what's going to happen. >> itself the way i wanted to. i don't want to let anybody off the hook. >> people know. people should know, we tried to prevent this from happening in the first place by fighting the law in 2010. then we tried to give people relief from this law in 20 thrown. that was rejected. so now we are living with this law and then we owe the american people an alternative about here's what you do if we win elections, we want to win an election by acclimation we want to win by saying this is not working for our country, this is not working for you, and there are better ways in keeping with our country's principles. >> that puts you in charge of your future. not some bour krat in washington. >> congressman ryan had some important things to say, amidst all my pestering questions, he assured everybody in that room, there will be no new taxes and the budge

, soon there will be a new senator-elect from new jersey who will stand where i stood just a few months ago to be sworn in. when he takes his place in this body, he will be joining a long list of dedicated public servants who have served new jersey, stretching back to the very first congress. i would urge him to continue to work as hard for the people of our state as he did while serving as the mayor of new jersey's large of the city. and i know that he will always put the people of new jersey first. new jersey's new senator will have a very long list of priorities waiting for him when he arrives in walkers awferl them important. there is one area that will require his immediate and ongoing focus: that is new jersey's continued effort to recover and rebuild from the devastation of superstorm sandy, which struck my are state a year ago today. working together, new jerseyans have made incredible progress in coming back from what the storm delivered, but our work continues. for those who have suffered so much loss, a year seems like an eternity. they must know that until all of the damage
months ago, in other words, after the 2012 election. because as we are seeing this , we are becoming aware of all of the problems that are in it. so someone had pointed out well, you had 3.5 years to make it, this website, and the computer person said well, actually, no, it has only been eight or nine months. i think if all of these problems had been articulated prior to the 2012 election, who knows, maybe it would have gone another way. host: ok, we will go to carol now from same, -- from st. louis, missouri. is it time to start assigning blame for some of the early problems with the health care exchange rollout? caller: actually, i hold the president responsible. here is what i hold him responsible for -- my grandchildren that are under 26 are covered. my granddaughter, who is 27 with a pre-existing condition, can now get insurance. she had one of those inferior policies, and they paid nothing when she needed it. he closed the donut hole for me on medicare for the prescription drugs, and the man who said it is on acceptable not to be able for his wife to have her own doctor, what i
unite together and let this thing unfold and show a viable alternative we can win that '16 election and that's when things start to turn around and that's when this country explodes with economic growth. you have to get the what and the why right. >> the what, we're doing pretty well, lore taxes, less intrusive government and what we have to do is connect to the whys. why are these policies important to the average person? part of the responsibility that we have is we can't say our doors are open. come on in. we have to be willing to go into places that we would consider an uncommon location for republicans to show up. sometimes we're only relevant every two or four years. i want to be relevant 365 days a year. >> that's what i will be talking about tomorrow. it's what we as conservatives want the kind of policies that unite us. >> give me a specific. >> one specific example and one that paul ryan and i have talked about extensively is pro-family tax reform. the kind of tax reform that would acknowledge the contribution that parents make. working parents are, in a sense, taxed twice
, particularly in the 2010 election. unfortunately, for our economy, for our businesses, for our people, we have done anything but restore certainty. in fact, we have governed by crisis. 30 days, 90 days, 180 days, a year. arbitrary deadlines put in place which brought the country to the brink of default and to the brink of closing down government. and in fact, of course, just recently, we did in fact shut down the government. now, my republican colleagues say we wanted that to happen on our side of the aisle. ironically, 198 democrats voted to open the government. that is to say every democrat that was voting on this floor voted to open government. and my colleagues who say they didn't want to shut down government, 144 of them voted to keep government shut down, mr. speaker, and 87 of them voted to open up government. so the american public is not fooled as to who wanted to shut down the government, but it was a bad policy and lent to uncertainty in our economy. reaching an agreement only for this fiscal year in addition, mr. speaker, will mean more left to do, more sequester left to replace an
, the election is over. >> i can't wait for jon stewart and colbert to do a fact check segment. i disagree with glen. he calls a bicycle a car. i think a bicycle is a bicycle. i don't think this is a health care plan these people have. on top of that only 17% were renewed before the affordable care act. >> you can rationalize all you want but you can't keep your plan. remember, the president said you will save $2500 per family per year. that's not true either. >> a lot of families will save money. >> no, they are not. >> it will save the country money, too. >> b nobody thinks the country will save makeup. this isn't going to work. we'll expand medicare and medicaid. do you know who's hurt? the 12 to 14 million people in the middle who don't have health care. they are small business owners, not obama voters. people who voted for obama will be fine. i wonder what percentage of the 14 million voted for the president. >> is a congressional budget office part of everybody or they don't count? they say it will save money. they don't count? >> who thought they were going to keep their health insu
's going to pay for this next election day, but his crocodile tears aren't going to impress everybody. everybody knows the republicans never wanted to be part of this, never wanted to own any part of it, never wanted to provide health care for the american citizens. they were in control of congress for a long time. and all of these problems existed, higher premiums, all the brang runsies and so forth. they existed when they were in control and they never did a thing about it. >> one of your colleagues made a strange request in the hearing today. here is congressman of colorado. >> i would like to submit a waiver from my district for obama care and hope that you would consider waiving obama care for the fourth congressional district. >> he wants to exempt his district from the law. but more than 102,000 people in his district are uninsured. so he wants to stop them from getting coverage or getting benefits like free preventive care and cheaper prescriptions. it's outrageous on the face of it, congressman. >> of course it is. and then you have people like him in texas like ted cruz. tex
but by democrats who voted for this thing, because they don't want to be stuck out there next year in an election year having to explain a website that still doesn't work. >> let's go back to the hearing. this is the chairman, the republican from michigan, checking her. >> i don't have that metric with me but i'll check on it. >> i believe those are numbers that cms has put out. the associated press reported in early september that there was a memo prepared for the assistant -- by the assistant secretary for planning and health. are you aware of that press story and that memo? i think it went through your office to secretary sebelius? >> it went through the enrollment numbers? >> yes. and it said that there were month-to-month predictions of enrollment numbers showing a path to the seven million that i mentioned. >> right. >> could you make that memo available to the committee? >> certainly. >> according to the press report, the memo estimated that 494,620 people would sign up for health insurance under the program by october 31st. we're obviously very near that date. have you met that estimate?
by the supreme court, the president was re-elected, it is the law and people have benefits and rights under that law and we've got to get that information so they can make good choices for themselves and their families. >> well, thank you. it is the law. and frankly i find it disconcerting that my republican colleagues have done nothing but root for this law to fail for the last three and a half years and now there's a big show here of being upset at problems with the website of keeping people from signing up for coverage fast enough. so i would just say to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, you're really on the wrong side of history here. the website will be fixed and millions of americans will be able to get quality affordable health insurance coverage through the affordable care act. and again, i thank you for being here today, madam. >> mr. pitts, chairman of the health committee. >> thank you, mr. chairman. welcome, madam secretary. have you personally tried to register or enroll on the website? >> sir, i created an early light account so i would see the prompts that were co
